Congratulations on your acceptance to St. Kate's! Our faculty and staff are ready to support you every step of the way and help you stay connected. In the meantime, here are your first steps toward becoming a Katie.

New College for Adults Student Checklist

Congratulations on your acceptance! Please review the important next steps toward enrollment in the checklist below.

Upon acceptance, a St. Kate’s email account will be created and you will be given credentials to access the tools on the students page and your Student Self Service account. This access is vital for receiving important University communications, viewing your bill, and financial aid awards.

You will receive two separate emails (sent to your personal email on record), one with your username and another with a temporary password. Next,
reset your password.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have a current student account from recently completed coursework, additional emails will not be sent and you are to continue to use your current account. If you have questions, please contact the Helpdesk at or 651-690-6402.

Once your degree evaluation is ready, you’ll receive an email from St. Kate’s with a link. Be sure to examine the requirements for your program and what credits will transfer. You may also use this tool to help determine a major if you are still deciding or create “what if” scenarios if you are thinking of another major.

Transfer Credit

To apply for financial aid (need-based grants, loans), start by completing the FAFSA, which is used to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and University aid.

You also need to complete the St. Kate’s Financial Aid Application.

Please let your financial aid counselor know if you will not be seeking financial assistance so that you do not continue to receive missing requirement emails.

Once you've completed the forms, you can also check the status of your aid offer in your student account  (Student Self Service/My Financial Aid).

Corporate and Community Partnership Scholarship
We offer a tuition scholarship for students who are currently employed at one of our partner organizations. Find out if you qualify and complete the form

All students must show proof of MMR  and tetanus vaccinations (clinical programs require additional vaccinations).  In addition, students enrolled in on-campus classes are required to complete their COVID-19 vaccination series (including a booster) and upload COVID vaccination cards prior to the first day of the semester.  All accommodation/exemption requests should be submitted to Student Affairs at

Students enrolled in academic programs delivered in 100% online capacity are exempt from this requirement and do not need to submit documentation of their COVID vaccination.

St. Catherine University requires that all full-time (12+ credits) degree-seeking students be covered by health insurance. Students with insurance must provide proof of coverage to complete the Health Insurance Waiver. You must be registered for classes to complete the waiver.
